Reviews for the Pastel Course

Hi Jane, First thank you yet again for such positive and helpful comments! I just had to send my revised picture as thanks to your tip-A touch of yellow to the front trees and zing the background hill receded! I did get acrylics to under paint and I enjoyed using them! Your courses have enabled me to enjoy painting and given me the confidence to paint on! I can’t thank you enough!
Best of wishes Maureen x

Hi Jane, Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. I really did enjoy doing this picture – it’s my sort of painting. It’s now in a frame as I had one the right size. Regards Jenny

 I feel I have learnt a lot from this course and feel so glad I found when googling courses. I feel you critiques have been very kind and encouraging as I don’t have much confidence in my work. I would be very interested if you were to do another one. Sheila
